After decades of abandonment, the soil in post-industrial areas offer poor quality, unsuitable for any use. Importing fertile land from elsewhere is expensive, both from an environmental and an economic point of view. Methods to restore soil fertility involve combining poor quality soil with organic waste compost and micro-organisms. In Turin, in the park on the Sangone stream, a fertile regenerated soil will be produced and tested, and will be used later to create green spaces. This experimental terrain is ideal for the growth of trees in the city and to make a new regenerated soil available and to be used in public green spaces such as playgrounds, flower beds, roundabouts and other infrastructures. This experiment will help to define a protocol for the dissemination of this innovative product on the market.
